Here, for your eyes only, is America’s best-kept travel secret: Asheville is the perfect vacation town, and one that is readily walkable for you and any furry friends that may tag along. The small city, according to those in the know, is a “hidden gem” that remains “under-the radar” despite its superlative architecture and natural beauty. Not only can Asheville boast of having one of America’s most significant collections of Art Deco architecture, thanks to its commitment to historical preservation, but it is also surrounded by 500,00 acres of jungly fun contained within the unspoiled Pisgah National Forest, more than enough space to keep even the most ambitious pup occupied. The local accommodations reflect the city’s cultural and environmental assets, with an abundance of cabins that are as scenic as they are stylish. There’s a pet-friendly rental for every sophisticated nature (and pet)-lover who chooses to visit Asheville … until it gets sniffed out.
